ORIGAMI BY BECKY HOLT FINEAt a Japanese festival in Seattle in 1998, I learned that there are local groups and even national conventions for origami aficionados from age 6 to 96. I bought a few books and got hooked. I love folding modular origami the most, which is the same unit folded multiple times and then pieced together to make a geometric figure. People work very hard to design these models and I regret that I cannot give due credit. I folded and constructed these models but the actual designs are not mine.
